Two long-form pieces for half-remembered journeys across post-industrial Yorkshire that fans of dusseldorf electronic experimentation will go giddy over.
On First impression, it appears to be a journey through a uniform landscape, past familiar mills, peaks & dales. Until you start to notice the details. The devil’s in the details. How did we get here? It almost certainly started in Düsseldorf or Köln. Or possibly The San Francisco Tape Music Centre. Banks of vintage equipment. A master craftsman at work in a nest of patch cables within an old textile mill. The tracks appear at their own pace. They gestate between recording sessions for other artists. There are guests on ‘Tenter Ground’. The single take drums deserve a special mention: a study in restraint & execution. ‘Eller Ghyll’ is perhaps a better signpost. From humble beginnings: a trickle into a mighty torrent.
